International Laboratory of Landscape Ecology

Book chapter
Neural networks and satellite images-based shrub tundra landscape study: phenomena with fuzzy geometric and categorical boundaries

Derkacheva A., Frost G. V., Ermokhina K. et al.

In bk.: 2023 International Conference on Machine Intelligence for GeoAnalytics and Remote Sensing (MIGARS). IEEE, 2023. P. 1-4.

The laboratory was established in 2022 to conduct research in ecology and geography. In its approaches, the team merges experimental methods of ground-based measurements of ecosystem functioning with the math-based methods of remote sensing (RS) data processing.

The main goal is to develop a set of approaches for RS data processing that will allow to use them most effectively as a source of information about landscape structure and organisation. Thereby, the key research focus of the lab is to develop methods for:

  • analysing data obtained at ground-based ecological stations and environmental observatories;
  • RS data processing as a tool for measuring functional variables of ecosystems;
  • integrating the data obtained with RS and ground measurements;
  • building statistical models of the ecosystems organization and functioning;
  • analysing and mapping landscape structure and its individual properties based on RS and ground data;
  • assessing climate-regulating functions of landscapes and caused impact on individuals;
  • quantifying and mapping ecosystem services.
